A confession; I didn’t enjoy the new James Bond film. Found it old-fashioned and think the era is over

I have a shocking admission to make; I didn’t enjoy the James Bond film.
With all the hoopla it had become a must. I was going to save an entire industry and enjoy myself at the same time. What was there not to like?
The truth is outside a couple of great car chase scenes it felt like a movie from a bygone age.
The suits, the ties, even the Aston Martins seemed like a throwback to the Sixties when the first Bond film came out.
Even Daniel Craig at 53 appeared too old for the role of an all-action fighting, shooting hero.
I saw No Time to Die in a small cinema but there was no love coming from the crowd. No whooping and hollering.

This franchise is coming to an end. There is no more reason to believe a Bond will survive than a Mondeo.
There have been 25 Bond films since Dr No in 1963. 007 has had a great run and made a fortune for everybody concerned.
It’s hard to see who will take over from Craig. To my mind it doesn’t matter if it’s a woman, a black actor, trans or a child I just can’t see it working.
On the way out the cinema manager wished us goodnight. Kind of him but my sense was that he was more concerned about the future of his job.
With Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sky and Apple+ producing such great television and with TVs being the size of small cinemas the days of going to the flicks are numbered.
